Hi there! This is my first time writing on here but I have to reply about my 08 trooper. I bought mine used 3 ears ago from McCoy powersports in Pikeville Ky. After paying them 7500 bucks for it and the salesman telling me there were no problems getting parts I took it home and commenced taking it for a ride. The first 3 months I had no problems, then it started, brakes-$200,next fenders started breaking $175 for front $200 for rear. After having a heartattac(a real one!) I let it set for 6 months recouping, then a good friend of mine wanted to borrow it and needless to say he wrecked it. He claimed the steering locked up then the wheel became free with no control. After tearing it down all 4 balljoints were dry as powder and rusty inside, the wheelbearings were shot the tierod ends wore out, even the heims were wore out. Since then everything mentioned has been replaced, all 4 axleshafts have been replaced, and I have drilled out the steering knuckles to install larger bolts to hold the ball joints in. Now I am having electrical issues. All this being said, I LOVE MY JOYNER TROOPER!!! I may be a nut but when this thing runs I have been able to outclimb every RZR and Wildcat and Can Am I have ridden with, also I get a lot better fuel economy. I will keep this thing running as long as I can, the sound of this motor is awesome! And changing gears is awesome too, I guess that comes from being a gearhead.OH, I almost forgot, I have also replaced the steering box and rebuilt the steering column.
